National Drinking Age Marks Memorable Anniversary

Earlier this month, Sens. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.) and Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) joined Mothers Against Drunk Driving to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the National Minimum Drinking Age Act, which raised the legal drinking age to 21. Dole, who was secretary of Transportation under President Ronald Reagan in 1984, and Lautenberg (who partially appears to the left of Dole), who originally introduced the legislation, played key roles in passage of the bill, including an appearance in front of the Capitol (above). They were also joined by Sen. Dick Lugar (right).
